With a thriving revitalized downtown and mile after mile of natural beauty, Bowdon, Georgia, is increasingly one of the most attractive residential real estate markets in the West Georgia area.
Bowdon, GA Community History
For much of its history, Bowdon was a thriving textile town. Today’s Bowdon is less commercial, but the city remains home to two of Carroll County’s top employers, Bremen-Bowdon Investments and Pilgrim’s Pride. Commercial investors and developers looking for a location to build or expand will find the 130-acre industrial park an affordable and ready-to-build location, complete with utilities and development incentives. In addition, real estate buyers will find a variety of commercial, industrial, and farm properties for sale in Bowdon and the surrounding area.
A focus of the last few years has been on revitalizing Bowdon’s historic downtown. The downtown area is conveniently situated around the crossroads of Georgia Highways 100 and 166, just 12 miles from Carrollton. Along these main streets, several blocks of former textile buildings have been renovated into restaurants and specialty shops. Pedestrian footpaths and off-street parking make the downtown area walker-friendly and invite diners and shoppers to enjoy dinner, a cup of coffee and a dessert, shopping, or a leisurely stroll through town. In the surrounding area, rolling hills with pastures and wooded areas offer natural beauty for those looking for a more rural residential lifestyle. However, since Interstate 20 is just 11 miles away, commuters will find Bowdon’s location convenient to the Atlanta metropolitan area as well.
Bowdon Is Located In Carrollton County
In addition to its location, Bowdon’s services and opportunities add to the quality of life residents enjoy. Bowdon’s proximity to Carrollton means convenient access to quality healthcare, including a 24-hour emergency department, as well as a wide range of inpatient and outpatient services and a well-trained staff that bring an exceptional level of medical care to area residents. Families with children love the convenience of three local schools, Bowdon Elementary School, Bowdon Middle School, and Bowdon High School, all part of the Carroll County School System. Bowdon also is home to a local branch of the West Georgia Regional Library. The city’s recreation department is very active, giving residents many great options for their leisure time, including several youth sports programs. Public tennis courts, a 9-hole public golf course, and Lake Tisinger also provide outdoor recreational opportunities. Bowdon’s senior adults enjoy weekly meals, bingo, and occasional sightseeing and shopping trips. Bowdon also hosts several annual events that are considered major attractions throughout Carroll County and all of West Georgia and East Alabama. These events include an annual Mardi Gras Celebration in February, Founder’s Day in August, Bowdon by Candlelight in November, and Son Rise Christmas musical at Copeland Hall in December. Copeland Hall, a 500-seat auditorium and gymnasium, is a popular venue for concerts, plays, business meetings, and other cultural events. A short 20-minute drive away, the University of West Georgia also offers a variety of cultural and educational programs that many in Bowdon regularly enjoy.
For all these reasons and more, Bowdon, “the Friendly City,” is an excellent combination of rural living in a close-knit community, and the area is a prime location for real estate investments in residential, commercial, farming, and property development.
